NZ Merino DK is part of Broadway’s premium New Zealand fibre yarn range. It is a gorgeous, budget-friendly merino yarn made from the finest New Zealand merino. It’s soft, durable, drapes deliciously, and did we mention that it is machine washable? Because it’s superwash it resists felting, and because it’s merino it also resists odours. Merino wool is thermoregulating so it’s a perfect year-round fibre. Use it for warm cowls, gloves and hats for winter or light sweaters for summer. Broadway Yarns is based in New Zealand and has chosen the colors of this yarn specifically to appeal to New Zealand knitters.
